Engineering Mathematics

One time, I went to this big bookstore, and I looked up engineering books. I found that 98% of those books has mathematics in it. What kind of mathematics do they use? Algebraic and calculus?

Math Focus: Calculus
It also depends on the type of engineering though.

What did the other 2% have, I wonder? They must have been popualr engineering book or something.

Calculus/real analysis at the very least. Some kind of differential equations would be typical. Numerical analysis, linear algebra, and complex analysis would also be possible.

If it's quantum mechanics, then there would be much more math, of course -- abstract algebra and the rest.
